Lee Ann Gouthier

Barrington, NH — Lee Ann Gouthier, 44, of Barrington, N.H., died unexpectedly on Tuesday, November 12, 2013, at her home.

Born in Haverhill on January 12, 1969, she was the daughter of Grover Gouthier of Livermore, Maine, and the late Barbara (McDermott) Gouthier. She graduated from high school in Maine.

Lee Ann was a very caring CNA, having worked in area nursing homes, as well as private duty nursing.

She was the loving mother of Shaylah Baiarrio of Amesbury and Jarryd Baiarrio of Veazie, Maine and is survived by her children and her longtime companion, Richard Spalding of Barrington, N.H.; her three brothers, Arthur Gouthier, Randy Gouthier and wife, Crystal, and Grover Gouthier Jr. and wife, Lynn; her three sisters, Christine Powers and husband, Jack, April Gouthier, and Sherrie Mullen and husband, Artie; along with numerous nieces and nephews and lifelong friends.

Her sudden passing has left their world shattered and their hearts aching and broken. However, as they call upon the memories she has left, they will recall her generosity of spirit, strength of character, and the deep love she had for them all. The gift of her life, as short as it was, will always fill their hearts with a very special joy.

ARRANGEMENTS: A Service of Remembrance will be held on Thursday, November 21, at 5 p.m., at the Highland Street Chapel of Paul C. Rogers Family Funeral Home, 2 Hillside Avenue, Amesbury, followed by visiting hours until 8 p.m. Interment will be private for the family.
